Bolton Wanderers boss Ian Evatt has claimed to The Bolton News that Eoin Doyle’s issues in front of goal for his side will not be long lasting.
The 33-year-old striker has failed to score in his last five games for the Trotters and was once again guilty of missing some guilt edged opportunities for his side in their recent 1-0 away loss to Sheffield Wednesday.
Despite this, Doyle already has four goals to his name this term and will be hopeful of ending his barren run in the not too distant future as the games continue to come thick and fast.
Now Evatt has claimed that he doesn’t think the issue is anything to worry about, as he stated the following on the matter recently:
“If you keep putting good players in the right positions then, eventually, they will go in, and that is what we will keep doing.
“It is not just down to Eoin, is it? It is down to the whole team. Other people have had opportunities and chances and not taken them so we will keep building him up, giving him confidence.”

Doyle was in top form for the club last season as they achieved promotion from Sky Bet League Two, with the veteran notching up an impressive 19 goals in the league.
Meanwhile Wanderers will be back in action this weekend as they take on Wigan Athletic at home in a local derby.
Evatt is absolutely spot on for backing the striker as even players like Doyle can go off the boil at various stages of the season.
Scoring goals has to be a collective responsibility this season if Bolton want to be successful and therefore there cannot be too much onus placed on the performances of just one man.
As long as the chances keep falling his way, Doyle will almost certainly start hitting the goal trail again for his side.
He is a player who has great experience of scoring regularly in the Football League and it is fair to predict that the trend will continue sooner or later.
